    Next, we click "Power & sleep"
    .
    Now, the screen is set like this: on battery power, it will turn off after 10 minutes; but when the computer is plugged in, the screen will never turn off. The same with the "Sleep" settings: if the computer is running on the battery, the computer will go to sleep in 30 minutes; but if the computer is plugged in, it will never go to sleep.

    To change any of the settings, we need simply to click the drop-down menus and then choose the time
    .
    For example, we click the first drop-down menu. We want the screen to be turned off after 1 minute. So, we need to click "1 minute". If we don't want to make the screen turn off, we simply need to scroll down and choose "Never".
